Plain and simple, I love fashion. I love that boundaries are virtually nonexistent and individualism perpetuates the industry. Today’s look translates the unique, expressionistic spirit of fashion to an edgy street-style ensemble. By playing with androgyny, this Fashionista adds a really unique quality to her look. The pieces themselves are not overtly masculine, but the assimilated styling choices create a sleek look that certainly diverts from the typical femme aesthetic.
The outfit itself is stubbornly simple, but carries an associated attitude of cool. The touches of hardware — such as the zipper detail on the black skinny jeans, glasses and earrings enhance that cool factor. Small, eye catching details have the ability to make an outfit really special. The pop of orange in the “A” adds to this as well.
The varsity jacket is clearly the focal point of the ensemble. Due to the effect of color blocking and mixing of textures, the jacket allows the tomboy and chic worlds to collide. I like that this Fashionista uses the jacket in a very sleek way as opposed to the sporty, jock vibe typically associated with the piece. The sportiness of the jacket adds a relaxed, university feel making the outfit perfect for hanging out on the quad. It’s a great piece to add to any outfit in need of a pop of color and/or attitude adjustment.
One Simple Change: To make this outfit more appropriate for a girl’s night out, swap the jacket for a varsity style cardigan. Also to give the outfit a bit of a feminine edge, swap the black skinnies for black leather shorts and black tights.
